Distraction is our #1 enemy to success. Our world is awash with information, advice, solutions, alternative choices and it is not the information which is the problem, it is our inability to be 'certain' enough to 'commit' to the recipe and follow through. The irony is that if we felt like making a chocolate cake and bought a cake mix, we would not doubt that if we follow the recipe on the back of the box the cake would turn out exactly like the one on the front...
Resistance: The Enemy Within
It is fair to say that most of the tiredness or feeling of exhaustion that we sense when we think about change is in fact ‘resistance’. We so often think it is “easier said than done” but in actual fact..
“It IS easier done than said”.
Take the situation where you are procrastinating about making a dental appointment. How many seconds does it take to pick up the phone and dial the number…
considering all the ways to get out of it because of:
- the money it costs,
In the meantime, the appointment would have been booked and you would have committed to it right?
Resistance is a powerful force in our lives. It is the enemy working in conflict with everything we believe we are hoping for. As we are not consciously aware of just how much it dominates our thinking and our actions, it takes us for everything we have.
We think we are tired or we think this ‘bad feeling’ is because it won’t work, can’t work, shouldn’t work, is not due to work… and it causes the perfect shield and distracts us elsewhere. It shields us from victory over the changes that we beat ourselves up about because we feel they should be so easy and sound so simple to complete.
The reality is that because we can’t see the enemy of resistance, we don’t prioritise its dissolution but there are fun and exciting ways to dissolve a great deal of the retardation in your energy fields and clear your resistance!

Your words are bringing life or death and you pay the price.
Most of the things you may have been reading or listening to about bringing on your success and victory may not have really registered deep down where the profound re-programming begins.
This may be BECAUSE you can’t see the power in what you are being asked to do.
For the most part you may still only trust what you can see. Even though the science of personal development lays down a precise and exact instruction of how to behave to attract wealth and abundance, the changes you need to make may not be happening because somewhere inside you you don’t BELIEVE in the power of some things you are asked to do.
Perhaps you believe that they are just too simple to create the impact you need.
Well the exciting fact remains that opportunity is still available to you.
Today you STILL have 57,600 ground breaking, rock your world opportunities to change your future even if you ONLY focus on the resource of your WORDS.
This number is assessed on the premise that you will probably be awake 16 hours.. x 60 minutes… x 60 seconds (= 57,600 moments).
Within each moment is a PRECISE AND EXACT INSTRUCTION which YOU are giving to the creative process in the form of words to make happen AS IS.
These WORDS are those:-
*** and each of these words hold100% power of LIFE and DEATH ***.
Does it take effort to control your words?
Will it get easier?
Will you do it?
Nobody is going to change your life except you. No matter what anyone says to you, thinks about you, or behaves towards you is relevant to your creative process. The only thing that will CONTROL your life is what comes OUT of you and what you accept IN to your world. Your CREW who are waiting on your every word are not hearing, seeing or paying attention to anything anyone else does or says in your life!
If you do not control your words and WATCH to see what they are going to ‘put into motion’ you will never gain control and will always be held victim by your circumstances as they are currently defaulted.
I once heard an I.T. technician frustratingly claim that he wished humans were more like computers. What he hadn’t realised is that computers are a perfect expression of human behaviour in as much as they are perfectly predictable – you will get out exactly what you put in.
Every program and software package (which provides the source of the power ‘to create’ was built by a human and therefore mirrors how a human thinks and operates.
Microsoft Windows did not create itself, a human told it how to operate and therefore it works the way the designer WROTE it based on the way the designed thinks. If it didn’t work the way he thinks then he could not understand it to work on it!
Computers will do exactly as they are programmed and they are programmed with WORDS.
Example of Programming Source Code for a Webpage
When a programmer gets an error and a page doesn’t load online he/she goes to the ‘source code’ and studies the code. I can confirm from designing websites myself that going through the code to find a specific error is much more of an ardous task than taking the time to write and check that it is correct when it is first committed to site!
It is the same for our lives. Start re-writing correct versions of what you want today and it will overwrite the conflicting instructions from the past. Don’t waste energy trying to figure out where things are going wrong, start writing powerfully from this moment on.
So the critical question is the source of your language killing everything all day long or giving life to situations?
If it has been destroying..? NO PROBLEM! It has passed. You cannot change it BUT you can start writing a new future today.
However, to do this you have got to take control of yourself which is the fundamental difference between those that live the life they choose and those that live the life they are held randsom by (or at least how they see it).
It is hard to control my mouth!
Well let’s see how true this really is for you?
- If Donald Trump called you right now, and regardless of how stressful your circumstances, would you change how you speak?
- When your young children speak to you do you at least start to think about choosing different words?
- If somebody you want to impress shows up do you speak differently?
YES? Then clearly you can change your vocabulary when you have a good enough reason…
… so the question is not how hard is it but how much do you want things to get better?
The ability to take control is not determined by your upbringing, background and education.
When computers were first set up they were based on a programming language called “BASIC” and this language was enough to instruct anything to happen.
If you can speak, write and think you have established a BASIC ability to create and therefore have the same potential than anyone else to create anything you desire.
Watch what you do with your words today… will your words give life to better experiences or bring about death and destruction?
Listen to yourself, it’s the only way to find out and start to change it.
If you are too caught up in opening your mouth without thinking and really struggling then ask those closest to you to tell you when you are causing destruction with your mouth.
Bottom line is, don’t let it continue words are the most phenomenal resource you have that costs you no amount of money but will TRANSFORM YOUR WORLD and attract the success you want. If you want to clear up the words and the source of any destruction buried within the four walls of your home, get yourself a copy of Home Your Wealth and get started on a new life today.
Success; Car Wash Approach to Change
The other day a guy asked me if success was only realistically going to happen to a certain type of person. I replied “Yes. In fact, it ONLY happens to certain people.”
He looked very demoralised.
I told him “Success and accessing your personal potential only happens to those who change their behaviour to support how they say they want to live AND they stay as consistent as they can with the new behaviour until the change happens.
“Oh not again” he said, “I’ve heard this about ten times in the last month”.
I could hear from his tone, his flippant reaction and his body language that the problem is he has never taken the answer to his question seriously, neither now or during the last ten times he heard it. Like most people he wants to hear something else.
The very fact that he asked the question meant:-
I reminded him of The 16 Hour Formula and the only power he had was in today and if he didn’t claim responsibility and make changes today, he wasn’t effecting any changes in the future. I made it clear to him that he hadn’t even made the decision yet.
One of his reasons for wanting an alternative answer was that he went on to say that he had concluded that “Changing your behaviour is easier said than done… and it was just easier for some.”
I had to correct him by telling him that actually in reality, that’s not true, it is ‘easier done than said’.
We continue the behaviour we are defaulted to every day because we are used to it, even though it causes us pain. In most cases, we suffer so much unhappiness that we live in a state of numbness. It is fair to generalise that most people, when asked the question “Are you happy?” don’t even know how to respond!
Success can be achieved through a negative perspective!
A very fruitful way to secure a breakthrough is to go the negative route (because realistically, we are all defaulted to the dark side when we wake up and we generally have to struggle to regain positivity as the day wears on)… so it’s easier to go the route we know and start with ourselves as ‘a mess’ than try to ‘see ourselves as successful’ because we usually stumble at this first imagined scenario.
Consider the analogy that you came into this world as a dirty car and self development is simply an analogy of going to the car wash. Accept the premise that actually the truth is you have no idea of your real colour and design because you have been driving around the way you are for most of your life.
Underneath the surface lies the sparkle, the polished model of yourself full of colour and shine but you have been weathered by and have inherited destructive thoughts, feelings and actions towards yourself and what you believe you can have in life.
Now your windscreen is dirty and has coloured life grey and dingy.
Success is a Decision (which then needs managing). It is the point where you decide that you are tired of the mess and want to see the colour in your life… you’ve had enough of grey; you’re heading to the car wash and you are going to clean your window and discover your true colour, model and sparkle – the real you in all your glory!
Car Wash Time is the period of time when you look outside at your relationships, your home, your business or your job and the condition of your health and you decide what you’ve had enough of.
Self Development mirrors the Car Wash process in that the whole function of a car wash is to ‘remove the dirt’, not to help you figure out what colour your car is and what model.
You are paying for removing the dirt. The same is said for turning successful situations into successful ones using any self development solution.
NOW, when it comes to finding the abundance that was always yours by design,
Many goals are not established because we are encouraged to sit down and ask ourselves what we want but we have not been raised this way. To the contrary, we have been trained to ‘settle’.
In deciding our goals we are encouraged to imagine a life of luxury when we actually have no experience to draw on. We cannot bring up an emotion without the experience and it is emotion that is the creative force… Energy in MOTION. The mind is the source of what we want to change but it is the emotion that is the driving force to push us into any kind of physical action.
Think about it, how much training have we ever received in having what we want?
We usually start practicing at about one year old when we can start expressing ourselves and following our imagination but it is usually knocked out of us by the age of seven or eight.
In reality, because of our inheritance it is actually easier for us to settle, struggle and tolerate pain. Turning this default behaviour around requires dedication and a daily commitment to retrain our behaviour.
Often times you can fool yourself into thinking you are changing but the reality is that your behaviour has to be consistent for longer than you might be doing.
The fabulous news is that it does not require big amounts of time, money or energy.
What is required is your beliefs to be changed and you have to PROVE them for the programme to be changed. Your change in behaviour requires consistency and so you need to choose practices which you get to do every day and which enable you to reinforce a new belief for yourself.
For example, you say you want a better car but every day you climb into a messy one and go about your busy day. The car may not be the model you hoped for but your dismissive attitude to any litter in the car, or the dirty outside affirms you don’t really care.
You accept the situation by telling yourself ‘I will be much cleaner when I get the new one’ but you have not fully accepted the science of the creative process. What you do today in terms of thoughts, feelings and actions determines what will be your future.
The present circumstances will remain until you have physically proved what you say is important to you so you need to look at what you are doing during the 16 hours between waking and going to bed.
I have discovered that the one consistent method for re-programming my life for success and ‘affirming’ what I say I want to change is using my home and personal spaces at work because it is the one place I WILL be every day.
With this method, I am assured of the opportunity to rehearse the changes I say I want until they become permanent.
I have laid down this breakthrough in my book Home Your Wealth which will show you how to see your deeply hidden blind spots and provide easy ways to remove the mess from your programming which is keeping your success at bay.
